Echoes Of My Neighbourhood #11

I live in a little town called Lake Stevens, aptly named for the lake which the community surrounds. Summers get a bit busy here as everyone finds something to do water-related… swimming, skiing, kayaking, boating, fishing, rowing.  We even have our own little rowing club. There’s sometimes activity on the water in winter as well, even people suited up skiing (extreme, very extreme).

At the Cove in the summer, we have “Music on the Lake,” where various local bands will come and perform, as well as outdoor movies.  The town’s biggest party takes place the last weekend in July, known as Aquafest.  Five blocks of Main Street are roped off and it becomes a fun little carnival with lots of games, rides, craft vendors, and food booths galore.

And it has just occurred to me, I’ve never shown pictures of the actual lake.  While it was cloudy when I took these pictures, we are never lacking for sunshine in the summer.

While Internet safety is always a primary concern, I’m not too worried about those of you who like to stalk.  I went to my local Wal-Mart this morning and stocked up on hunting supplies… so chances are I’m going to see you before you see me.  😀

I am joining Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha from A Cooking Pot and Twisted Tales for her series, “Echoes of My Neighbourhood,” where she challenges us all to share a photo of bits and pieces of wherever you are at any point in time.

        no, it was quite tropical if i recall 🙂 hehe, yeah it was bloody cold and my legs felt like they were going to cramp even before the start…i had a terrible swim in that race if i recall but the boy came up with the best race quote ever when i made it to transition and he said something like “how come everyone else has got on their bikes already Dad?” And, I’m using that quote on m blog before you take it 🙂

      We don’t actually, although we’ve toyed with the idea of getting one for open-water swim training. One of us kayaks and one swims… you know, for safety sake! They’re quite inexpensive at the Sports Authority here! 🙂

    Lol @ the camouflage. Those are beautiful pics….we have something similar to aquafest here called the riverfest and it also takes place in July. It’s always a good time and a great way to get out of the house!!
